I have been working at Esri

Pros

Great benefits, fantastic work life balance, highly intelligent staff

Cons

Low pay compared to industry for many positions. No set salary increases upon promotion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create formal, published, salary ranges and offer set expectations when someone promotes as to what their salary increase will be. People that promote quickly over several years end up with low salaries compared to comparable outside hires.

    Former Employee - Sales Manager in Redlands, CA

    I worked at Esri

    Pros

    Flexibility, challenging work, decent facilities

    Cons

    Ownership shielded from, and have lost touch with, reality, not a positive direction.

    Mgmt cover their ineptitude.Long term Inexperienced staff in management positions can't complete tasks or are totally out of touch. Minimal to no accountability. Gestapo like HR practices. Losing long time productive staff . 2 HR groups that don't see eye to eye

    Promotion based on who you know, not productivity or performance

    New performance review primarily subjective, no support needed for negative appraisals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back in touch with long time employees, without mgmt & HR intervention. Be careful with new HR regime. If you don't, things will continue to go south

    I worked at Esri

    Pros

    no lay offs, nice city, career wise and salary wise some departments are better to work for and some positions pay a lot better, but you have to be lucky to get into those positions

    Cons

    no career growth, no management (personnel or projects). low pay and low raises, employees always complaining about bad pay and raises, being stuck in a dead end job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start listening to and caring about employee careers. ESRI is a sinking ship, it might take another 10 years for it to sink completely, but by then it will be too late.
